The History of Pilates
Pilates is a physical fitness system originally called “Contrology”. It was developed in the early 20th century by Joseph Pilates, after whom it was named. He was a circus performer who dedicated his entire life to improving his physical fitness after suffering with asthma, rickets and rheumatic fever as a child.
His method of movement and strengthening was very challenging and originally aimed at rehabilitating circus performers and dancers. Much of the modern Pilates now taught is a very modified form of his movements, which have been adapted to suit a range of abilities and health conditions.
